Magic & Sorcery – Temu (SWE/US)

Written by 

Since being alerted to LaGaylia Frazier we've discovered another American born singer who is producing quality music. Originally from New York, Temu Bacot is a singer, dancer, producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who now lives in Malmö, Sweden. Temu's music moves from mellow soul to raged-filled rap, and from to talk-box p-funk to sophisticated ballads.

Temu featured on the multi-platinum hit “We’ll Always Love Big Poppa”, Gramatik's "Talkbox Intened" and on recordings with Denmark’s The Urban Night Crew, The Majors and Negash Ali, Pharaohe Monch, Promoe, Stine Kinck, EagerStunn, Nanna B, Peacefull James, Mighty One Beatz and Jazz band POVO. Also a string of production credits that include; Jokeren, Jooks, Orgie-E, Marc Johnson, and many more.

    Tasting Minds by Moskowitz & Katja Welner is such a track.

    Gold.

    Historically, this precious metal has always been desired due to its relative rarity and attractive colour.

    Fittingly, the cover artwork of Danish soul singer Nanna.B new EP Golden* does indeed look desirable as it gleams in pure golden hues.

    Now based in LA, does Nanna's five-track EP contain any musical nuggets within this shiny exterior?
